Doh. Why is it only open to US residents?  As if not being able to buy songs from Europe wasn’t enough…

Your address will be used/sold for send promotional materials.  I already get enough junk mail.

No thanks.

If you can’t buy songs from Europe, what good would this contest do you anyway?!  You need an AppleID with a US address even if you’re just redeeming an iTMS gift certificate.

iPodlounge ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT sell its email list to any third party. I HATE Spam and don’t wish that hell upon any iPodlounger.

Wait, so is it a 100, 50, and 20 dollar like the ad and article says, or a 100, 50, 25 dollar like the rules state?

I’d say its $25 because it goes with the # pattern smile

Correction, the amount is $20 not $25. Apple does not offer $25 gift certificates. Rules have been updated to $20. Thanks for pointing this out.

No problem dennis, i figured it was one way or the other.  Although winning either one wouldnt be so bad…
Thanks for running this competition dennis, its really cool.
